The patio at Wonderland in Columbia Heights. By yawper.
It is no secret that the demographic make-up of Columbia Heights and Mount Pleasant has transformed over the past several years. But now there is a chart which shows just how much the population has changed.
The Urban Institute recently released a comprehensive look at how the make-up of the city has changed, which included a short case study (in the form of a chart) on the two neighborhoods above.
Here are the main takeaways:
- The percentage of white residents in the two neighborhoods jumped from about 13 percent in 2000 to about 31 percent in 2010.
- The percentage of black residents fell from about 53 percent to 37 percent.
- The number of residents with children dropped from 22 percent in 2000 to 15 percent in 2010.
The study has a number of other interesting examples about how the city has changed in recent year, including a map of the millenial invasion. Check it out here.
